Free Wallpaper for August 2017

Happy August everyone! I'm not going to lie...this summer has been a rough one for me and I feel like I just haven't been able to catch a break. Usually summer is a time when my work flow lulls a bit, but June was my highest grossing month and in July I've been working through all those packages that were booked. That plus non-stop company at our house and whatever remnants of a personal life are left have made me really need to slow it down.

With that said -- the new FREE digital wallpaper for August featuring these cute lil' jellies is the perfect representation of how I just need to go with the flow for a little bit! We took our good friend's daughter to the aquarium last month and while she was more interested in the garbage on the floor (she's only 1 and a bit too young to care about fish), I was super intrigued with the jellyfish and brought my camera to snap some pictures.  And that's how this wallpaper came to be! I hope you and I can both plaster these dudes on our digital screens for the month and float along. Please share and enjoy!

Free Wallpaper for July 2017

Summer is in full swing and the heat is here for July! Usually I slow down a bit during the summer, but this year for some reason I've been full to the brim with new branding projects and website designs (including this newly launched brand + website for Compass Advisors that we just wrapped up!). But don't worry, I would never forget about the free wallpaper design for the month -- and I'm totally loving this one.

How to Establish Trust On Your Website

How to Establish Trust On Your Website

When people visit your website there's always an end goal. An action you want them to perform, a product you want them to buy, some sort of next step you want them to take towards hiring you. But how do you get people to do these things? A big part of getting your visitors to do you what you want is by establishing trust with them so that they are willing to invest in you. People want to invest their money in credible products and services, they want to know that they can trust you with their money. Everything that you do on your website contributes to this in some way, but here a few things you can implement right away to start building that trust with your users.

Free Wallpaper for June 2017

Hold on to your butts...for the new FREE wallpaper design for June featuring a super fun dinosaur pattern! A few weeks ago my sister-in-law said she was redecorating my nephew's room with a dinosaur theme and I jumped at the chance to practice my illustration skill to make him some new wall art. And then I decided that I loved these little dudes so much that I wanted to look at them all month. So I made a cute little pattern with them and the rest is (pre)history...hah. Anyway, I hope this brings you as many giggles as it has brought me. Plaster these buddies on all your digital screens and please share + enjoy!

P.S. My favorite dinosaur is the iguanodon, in case you were wondering.

City Pop is a gourmet popcorn company with brick and mortar shops in Denver + the surrounding areas (including in Winter Park, which I saw when we went skiing this year!). They have so many delicious and unique flavors and it's all locally produced, so you know you're getting an amazing product!

Chris from City Pop came to me last year needing to design some fun and unique labels for special occasions. The idea is that their customers will be able to buy tins of popcorn and pick the label for the occasion so that it makes a great gift! I absolutely loved the idea and was so excited to get started after we discussed the aesthetic and purpose.

Free Wallpaper for May 2017

I may have jumped the gun thinking of Spring when I created this design, because as I was writing this post over the weekend I was hunkering down in the middle of the blizzard here in Denver. But I just love how this fresh, fun lemon pattern turned out that I'm willing to chalk this one up to wishful thinking. Here's to hoping that summer is right around the corner...and in the meantime, please share and enjoy this FREE digital wallpaper design to keep all your screens looking sweet!

How To Add Personality To Your Brand

How To Add Personality To Your Brand

I recently had a conversation with a friend about who my favorite people to work with are and, I realized that one thing all my favorite clients have in common is that they’re brimming with personality. Not only do they have loads of personality, but they’ve let me inject it into their brand to make a one-of-a-kind identity for them. By doing this with their brand, they are already building a relationship with their target audience.
